LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have

Bought LG LST-5100P set top box recently as a second hand. It has a very strange fault - "frozen picture" with sound going. Once it happens - all buttons on the front panel are not working at all as well as a remote control. It is not even possible to turn it off using remote control or power button on the front panel. I have to disconnect STB from electric socket and turn it on. This is the only way to start it again. I have got the "frozen picture" several times through evening watching. Sometimes this happens 2-3 times through the long watch, sometimes I have it every 10-15 minutes. Espesially on Channel 7. I've tested STB through the last week every day on two TVs : new LCD TV and older model CRT 29" TV. The result was the same - "frozen picture"(just a frame) after while with a sound going and no functions from the front panel buttons and remote control. I even antenna amplifier and attenuator antenna to get better signal but haven't got any change. What kind of problem is that? And how much is to get it fixed roughly? Thanks

Cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts....

Hi, will my LG LST-5100P work in England?


Hi,

Yes the digital set top box should work in the UK. When it arrives just re-scan for the channels as the UK are currently in the middle of a digital switch over.

LG LST-5100P set top box does not display menu with an older ( 1998) tv set. Cant select aspect ratios . All I can do is change channels. Any ideas? Rod


Hi Rod,

Thanks for Using FixYa. If its a 4:3 normal TV or a wide 16:9 TV then you can view high definition picture by using the ARC button on your remote control to change the wide mode(Auto,Letter Box, Pan & Scan). Also check its free user manual for more information.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

How to remove LG LST-4100A


To remove the LST-4100A commercial control interface from the television you need to follow the commands below.

1. Power on television.
2. Press and hold "MENU" for 10-15 seconds.
3. Quickly press "2-6-6-3" and then press "ENTER"

If you have done everything properly, it will bring up a small menu in the top left hand corner of the television. Kind of a hidden menu.

4. Arrow down to the menu option that says "D Box" and turn the option to "OFF".

Now turn off television and completely disconnect the LST-4100A. In fact, throw it away. In the trash is where it belongs.

Your television will now operate like a normal television purchased from a big box store. You should run an automatic programming setup for grins upon completing.

Enjoy your new NON-commercial lcd television.
